Professional Overview

As a counterintelligence (CI) professional for close to 13 years I have established diverse skills working for several DOE CI programs, beginning with the Inspections and Polygraph program and most recently in the Richland Field Office (RFO). Our mission focuses on the foreign intelligence service (FIS) and foreign terrorist threat to DOE assets including the Hanford Site. In fulfilling this mission I have worked both independently and as a team member to accomplish our required duties. I have developed detailed CI threat assessments by identifying and analyzing potential vulnerabilities of DOE equities including personnel, facilities, sensitive and classified information, special nuclear material, research and development data, and other sensitive materials and resources. I serve as our facility's COMSEC custodian and OPSEC officer responsible for safeguarding our facility and internal security processes. I have been a primary focal point during our internal CI assessments facilitating and participating in the Inbrief/Outbrief meetings, scheduling interviews, addressing our scope of work through interrogatories, and tracking/completing identified corrective actions. I conduct CI briefings and awareness training to senior management and other federal and contractor employees who interact with foreign entities by traveling overseas or hosting visitors and assignees on site. I regularly interact with federal and local law enforcement agencies to include, the FBI, DOE IG, DHS, and Hanford Patrol. Additionally, I maintain a strong relationship with DOE/RL SES site specialists and other operating personnel to assess potential terrorist targets based on analysis of current threat information and the sites’ identified critical infrastructure and facility vulnerabilities.
